A young Englishwoman seeks solace on a quiet African beach after a series of personal and professional traumas. Harriet Walters narrates this cerebral adventure story using a detached style which reflects Hope's futile attempts to make sense of past events and relationships using her intellect alone. Meditations on mathematical theory, botany and chimpanzee society are evenly paced and read with a clarity that makes them easy to digest. Walters also creates smooth transitions among the African/American/British accents and the dialects of other characters, enhancing the characters in the story. Listeners can settle in for a long, literary and thought-provoking experience. J.A. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG 94]
